Slide Five (Slide 5), consists of John and Dave Warrin, on guitar and keys respectively, plus Guy Gershoni, drummer, and John Christensen as bassist, all of whom were part of San Francisco’s acid jazz scene in the ’90s. The quartet was formed in 1990 and performed around the Bay Area. They also recorded material for a cassette that would be sold at shows. Ubiquity Records gave them prime slots on three compilations (Mo’Cookin’, Still Cookin’, and Is That Jazz). Slide Five signed with Ubiquity Records in 1995. Their first release, Rhode Trip was a compilation of tracks taken from an independent cassette. Slide Five’s 1997 debut People Places, featured the original tracks.
